    1. A ruched long-sleeve T-shirt dress that'll look amazing dressed up with heels or down with your favorite sneakers.


    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    2. A pair of super opaque high-waisted leggings to replace your favorite pair that have a giant split in the crotch.


    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5'5" and curvier. I was worried they were going to be too tight or see-through. However, that’s not the case! They are not see-through even after three washes so far. They are extremely soft and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is they are more of a muted black compared to some of my other leggings but it’s barely noticeable. I liked them so much I ordered a second pair. Def would recommend!" —nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three sizes and in 22 colors).

    3. An oversized thermal top for when those fall temps hit and you need the perfect shirt to wear.

    Promising review: "I love thermals for fall and this is perfect! Super comfy and a bit oversized to wear off the shoulder! Love!" —Life With Cam

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in eight colors).

    4. A fluffy fleece pullover to throw on in lieu of walking out in public wrapped in a blanket.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 18 colors).

    5. A flowy and ruffled babydoll dress you can perfectly pair with your favorite knee-high boots.,

    Promising review: "Love it! Great quality and a perfect look. I am buying it in another color." —BRANDI D WALKER

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in eight colors).

    6. A pair of faux-leather flats designed with a rubber sole so you can be comfy (and slip-free) all day — because we all know how much of a hazard a wet leaf can be.,

    Promising review: "Definitely worth the money for a leather flat dupe! True-to-size with no break-in period since they're not real leather but feels just as smooth. No toe cleavage and no weird noises when you're walking. I wear between a 7 and 7.5 and bought the 7.5 in these to be on the safe side." —Matt

    Get them from Amazon for $17+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in six colors).

    7. A gorgeous braided velvet headband that's available in some gorgeous jewel tones perfect for fall — it's also especially perfect to give your hair some life between washes.


    Promising review: "I really like this headband, it's a nice accent. I've received so many compliments when I wear it. I got it in black and it is comfortable to wear." —Aurora Casados

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in six colors).

    8. A gorgeous silky wrap skirt people will think you paid way, WAY more for.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this $5 skirt!!! It looks exactly like something you’d pay $49 for at H&M. Good quality, I paired it with a beautiful black tank and got soooo many compliments! Shipping took about two weeks, but totally worth it!" —Lexusvuitton

    Get it from Amazon for $1+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 15 colors).

    9. A pair of ultra-comfortable cuffed sweatpants designed with an elastic waist, pockets, and a stretchy material — you will literally live in these.


    Promising review: "I have bought several of these pants because they are the most comfortable things I've ever owned. I'm not a fashionista, but I'm aware that wearing sweatpants out of the house is not universally accepted, despite the majority of us doing it. However, I feel confident wearing these with a T-shirt or tank top whilst going out and about, and looking put together. I also got these because I have a tough time finding pants that don't push on my bladder too heavily like the jeans or slacks that I wear to work. I have interstitial cystitis and these pants are soft and fit well enough that I need not worry about any issues arising in that department. I'm not the biggest fan of all of the designs, but I'm sure there's a design out there for everyone. Or you can get the plain ones. Whichever works for you." —Featherpin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 73 colors).

    10. A pair of adorable sneakers that are actually rainboots! Yes, you heard me right! These cute classic sneakers are actually the perfect little waterproof rainboot and they come in a bunch of fun colors.


    Promising review: "These are so fantastic!! I'm in love. Seriously best rain shoes I've ever worn. The quality seems really great, they are comfy, and look like real Chucks. I was worried that because of the rubber they might look bulky like clown shoes, but it's not the case — they look great!" —Joanne

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 6-11, high and low top styles, and in six colors).

    11. A velvet cami for when you need something ultra soft but also totally badass.

    Promising review: "Absolutely incredible value for this super-soft cami! The velvet stretch is perfect for a looser fit. Surprisingly very well-made, I've seen versions of this camisole at Nordstrom for over $30! Such a good price, I'm stocking up now!" —Ethan B.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 colors).

    12. An oversized cable-knit cardigan you can throw on when you complain that it's cold in the house and that you want to turn up the heat but your dad just yells at you to put on a sweater.


    Promising review: "So soft and comfortable!! Fits really big though. I got an extra large, which is my normal size but definitely could’ve gone with a large. I would suggest sizing down. I love oversized sweaters though! It’s 100% acrylic so it doesn’t shrink, which is nice. It’s also super soft without being scratchy. I love the cable-knit design! It’s washed really well and I want it in all the other colors now!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

    13. A pack of beautifully patterned fishnets that are still conservative enough for a workplace but lively enough to give your look some personality., Amazon

    Promising review: "The fabric is really, really soft and goes back to the original shape even after wearing them for the whole day. The instructions included are pretty straight forward for washing and keeping them. I love their packaging, which is quiet classy. The pattern doesn't have big holes/netting hence it doesn't show much of your skin so I feel they are perfect for work and formal meetings. I love these tights!!" —Anshika Goel

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two sets).

    14. A pair of paper bag waist slacks you know would look so cute with a crop top, maybe even too cute?


    Promising review: "I spent a long time looking at the different brands of paper bag waist pants on Amazon and really struggled to choose the kind that would have the best fit for my body type. I am 5'2", 120 lbs., and ordered a small in these. They fit is PERFECT. They are snug enough in the back and legs so they don't look baggy, and they fit perfectly at the waist. I am so glad I went with these! I will be buying more colors!" —Betty Cloud

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 colors).

    15. A pair of high-waisted faux leather leggings for when you need the comfort of elasticity but also need to look like a total boss., Amazon

    Promising review: "These leggings are a hit! They are not cheap-looking at all! I originally bought them for a cosplay, but ended up wearing them for fashion purposes and they are a hit! Super comfy and stretchy around the waist." —Rebecca J

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (available in sizes S-2XL).

    16. An adjustable spaghetti strap body con midi dress you'll easily be able to layer with your favorite denim jacket on a casual day or with a pair of look at me heels for a night out.


    Promising review: "I once saw a girl with a simple black dress at a resort and to me, she looked stunning. To that end, I was looking for a casual cocktail dress. And this is it! I generally prefer to shop for more expensive dresses because of quality but for the price, this dress exceeds in quality. It’s a great stretchy material and nicely stitched. I am very slim, like a stick, and it fits just right." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in three colors).

    17. A super-soft and stretchy off-the-shoulder long-sleeve T-shirt, because sometimes you wanna show off a little shoulder with your jeans-and-tee look.


    Promising review: "I’m 5’2", 140 lbs., and I have a little belly. I ordered the size large and it fit perfectly. I love the boatneck neckline. This shirt can be worn with anything and dressed up or down. Seems like it’s really good quality and it’s really comfortable and soft. I’m going to purchase in more colors!" —B_Carlson

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors).

    18. A pair of super comfy black ankle booties to throw on all the time — and if black is not your thing, they come in 52 colors and styles!!! FIFTY-TWO!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have purchased two pairs of Soda Ankle Booties —

    one in khaki and one in black. I LOVE them! I am a size 10.5 and I have plantar fasciitis which causes me to have foot pain in most shoes I wear. These booties are the only attractive shoes I can wear to work all day that don't leave me in agony when the workday is over! I buy a size 11 and insert a pair of Dr. Scholl's into them to give me additional cushioning but they are so great. Enough heel to look good, not so much that they further harm my arches. I would highly recommend these booties to anyone looking for a great shoe at an amazing price!" —SarahK

    Get it from Amazon for $11.07+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 52 colors).

    19. A showstopping ruffled-sleeve tank for all those afternoons when you want to wear a little something extra.


    Promising review: "Really surprised by this! The cut and style are very good for the price. I would have paid $40+ for this blouse at Loft or Banana Republic and it is similar quality. I am 5'7", 130 lbs., and I ordered the medium. It fit perfectly. I am able to tuck it into a pair of jeans and looks very good under a jacket. Great office wardrobe staple. I ordered the white and needed to wear a camisole under, it is very sheer. I would guess the other colors — might need a cami under as well." —victoria

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in seven colors).

    20. A cotton-blend casual day dress designed with a flirty slit and a tie-waist.


    Promising review: "I really am pleasantly surprised! It fits great! I’m 5'4” and I was worried since most maxi dresses are too long on me but I can wear flats with it. You do need to be modest when sitting to avoid showing too much as the slit is high and seems to rise a bit when sitting." —RunnerGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors).

    21. A ruffle-sleeve polka dot midi dress you can easily layer under a cozy cardigan or pair with your favorite booties.


    Promising review: "Based on the reviews, I ordered a size up for the chest area to not be too tight but I found it runs true to size. I love the polka dots and the style of the dress is exactly what my grandma (who was born in 1918) used to wear when I was a kid in the '80s. The fabric is not see-through." —CK

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    22. An oversized sweatshirt tunic that you can also find in the dictionary next to the definition of "comfortable" — seriously, look it up! I'll wait here.


    Promising review: "A nice weight and super comfy. The V-neck is a little bigger than I realized, so I might wear it with a tank top. The pockets are discreet and don’t bulge out like some other inexpensive dresses I’ve bought on Amazon. I’d say an XXL is a 16-18. It’s not going to give you any shape, but it’s a sweatshirt dress, what do you expect?" —EB

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 36 colors/styles).

    This will NOT be you this fall, that's for sure.
